sources.list

Post by mhwelsh »

Please may I have a copy of the correct 'sources.list' to use for Update 7.

My existing lists have produced a rider to the Update Pack Info "Your system is pointing to the 'Linux Mint Debian Incoming' repository. This is only recommend(ed) for experienced users."
This statement definitely excludes me!

You can basically ignore the warning, the Mint developers for LMDE basically take care of it for you as long as you update mainly through the Update Pack system.

Debian Mate 64-bit, Xubuntu xenial 64-bit, Ubuntu-Mate 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS Mate 64-bit

Thanks to you both.
Two updates failed miserably so, having used all of my broadband allocation, put in a new iso and updated those. The iso has the correct sources list!

Rolling updates are a joke for me.

LMDE is only a semi-rolling update if you use the update packs. If you tie LMDE into Debian Testing directly or Debian Unstable directly, you would have a true rolling release, then get ready for application breakages, you are part of the testing process. There are threads on this forum on tieing in to testing with different /etc/apt/sources.list files.
